Law

The University of Bristol Law School is a centre for intellectually demanding, research-informed legal education. We aim to produce accomplished, well-rounded, enquiring graduates with a rich, ethically grounded appreciation of law in business and society.

Bristol is also a major centre for the study of modern languages and cultures. On this four-year joint honours course, which leads to a qualifying law degree, you will study Spanish language, linguistics, literature and history to degree level alongside your core units in law. This provides you with a valuable skill set, ideally tailored to the globalised workplace.

You will also have the opportunity to spend your third year at a Spanish university. During this year abroad, you study units in Spanish law. Visit our Global Opportunities website to find out where you can study in Spain (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/global-opportunities/go-abroad/). In your final year, you will undertake an extended piece of legal research.

All applicants must sit the National Admissions Test for Law (LNAT) before the relevant deadline. Details are available on the LNAT website (https://lnat.ac.uk/)

Please refer to the Admissions Statement below for further information about LNAT and visit the Law School's frequently asked questions page for further information about the course.

All our law courses satisfy the degree requirements laid down by the Bar Standards Board and the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

Please note that the routes to qualification as a solicitor in England and Wales are changing. Based on current information, the changes will likely affect all those commencing their law degrees from September 2021 onwards, if they wish to qualify as a solicitor. The latest information on these changes can be found on the Law School website or on the Solicitors Regulation Authority website. There is currently no indication that the Bar Standards Board (BSB), the body that regulates barristers, will change its academic requirements for qualification as a barrister.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

It's often said there's a shortage of modern language graduates, and graduates from Spanish courses have a lot of options available to them when they complete their courses. In 2015, nearly 1300 UK graduates got degrees in Spanish and the subject is seeing its popularity increase. About one in five got jobs overseas — often as English teachers. If you want to put your degree to work in the UK, teacher training is a common option, and businesses see Spanish-speaking countries as important markets, leading to graduate opportunities in marketing, human resources, sales and project management. But remember — whilst employers say they rate graduates who have more than one language, you need to have them as part of a whole package of good skills.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Law graduates tend to go into the legal industry, and they usually take similar routes. Jobs are competitive — often very competitive - but starting salaries are good and high fliers can earn serious money - starting on over £24k in London on average. Be aware though - some careers, especially as barristers, can take a while to get into, and the industry is changing as the Internet, automation and economic change all have an effect, If you want to qualify to practise law, you need to take a professional qualification — many law graduates then go on to law school. If you want to go into work, then a lot of law graduates take trainee or paralegal roles and some do leave the law altogether, often for jobs in management, finance and the police force. A small proportion of law graduates also move into another field for further study. Management, accountancy and teaching are all popular for these career changers, so if you do take a law degree and decide it’s not for you, there are options.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
